After receiving a Fulbright Science and Innovation Award, Adele began her doctoral studies with Prof. Gary Wells at Iowa State University in 2015.

Adele graduated with her Ph.D. in 2020 and began a position as a Postdoctoral Associate with Prof. Brandon Garrett at the Wilson Center for Science and Justice at Duke Law, where she is now a Research Fellow. Adele’s current work focusses on judgment and decision-making processes in legal contexts including examining prosecutorial discretion, eyewitness memory and identification procedures, juror decision-making, and forensic testing procedures.
